Area Weather: Warm-up could be on the way
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween Weekend.
All in all, it was not a bad Halloween. Temperatures were near average for this time of the year. The snow from Friday came to an end Friday night as the system pushed off to the east. Some spots north of Fergus Falls to Detroit Lakes reported four to six inches of snow from that system. They can have it.
Skies began to clear for most spots just in time for the trick-or-treaters. Sunday, was actually pretty decent. A few spotty showers fell Sunday morning, but then the sun came out allowing for a great day. It was also a nice day in Green Bay! What a win for the Vikings! Temperatures were in the mid 40s.
This week should be fairly quiet in our neck of the woods. We could see a slight chance of rain early Wednesday morning and again by Saturday and Sunday, but we could have some 50-degree temperatures again for later in the week into the weekend. Have a great day!
In 1901 with a high temperature of only 22 degrees and a low of 15 degrees, 175 boxcars of potatoes were in peril at the Minneapolis rail yard. To save the spuds, workers scrambled to move the rail cars full of potatoes into roundhouses and transfer them to refrigerated cars. Individual stoves had to be purchased on the spot for 59 remaining cars. Thankfully, most of the potatoes were saved.
The winter of 1932 was so cold that Niagara Falls froze completely solid!
